Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is no stranger when it comes to tech innovation. In its nearly 30-year history, the company has been a pioneer in everything from cloud computing infrastructure to e-commerce to video streaming to voice-activated technology like Alexa and beyond. With artificial intelligence (AI) moving to the forefront as the next major boom in technology, it shouldn't be a surprise to find Amazon there as well.
Existing competitive advantages and big opportunities driven by AI make this tech giant a smart investment.
Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) shares have popped by about 40% since the start of 2023.

It's also important to understand that no company is wholly impervious to the operating environment in which it exists.
